ThermoBLOCK

Segmental ablation ablation
with laser light guidance


ThermoBLOCK is a system that uses thermal energy to destroy both the endothelium and the collagen within the walls of veins. Thermoblock catheter heats the vein wall to 120°C. This temperature has been shown to be sufficient to cause proteins in the wall of the vein to denature.


SEGMENTAL  ABLATION TECHNOLOGY WITH LASER GUIDANCE

ThermoBLOCK Endovenous RF Ablation intended for endovascular coagulation of blood vessels in patients with superficial vein reflux. The catheter is provided sterile, and is a single-use, disposable device. ThermoBLOCK is a system that uses thermal energy to destroy both the endothelium and the collagen within the walls of veins. Thermoblock catheter heats the vein wall to 120°C. This temperature has been shown to be sufficient to cause proteins in the wall of the vein to denature. Thermal injury results in changes in the collagen of the vein wall and contraction of the vessel such that no blood can flow through it. Over time, the vein is gradually reabsorbed by the body’s natural mechanisms so that there is little, if any risk of recanalization.
